Mrs Lowry & Son
Tickets for Mrs Lowry & Son at The Lowry
Boasting powerhouse performances from Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave, this is the delicate, intimate and amusing story of the relationship between beloved British artist LS Lowry (Spall) and his overbearing mother Elizabeth (Redgrave) in 1920s Salford. Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her.
Special guests Timothy Spall and Adrian Noble (former RSC director) will take part in an on-stage ‘In Conversation’ after the screening.
The LS Lowry Collection in our Galleries will be open after the screening for late night viewing so you can see the paintings behind the story.
